Urban Spelunking with OnMilwaukee.com's Bobby Tanzilo
I love old buildings. If you stop to look -- and listen -- there is always a cool story hidden beyond all that cream city brick.
That's why 88.9 Radio Milwaukee is partering with OnMilwaukee.com to bring those stories of Milwaukee's forgotten architecture back to life, both on air and online.
Every week, OnMilwaukee.com Managing Editor and columnist Bobby Tanzilo joins me to share a few highlights from his article Urban Spelunking. He tells us where he has been, but more importantly, he tells us the stories he has heard.
In our first segment, Bobby takes us to downtown Milwaukee, inside a building that you probably have been past a zillion times but probably never noticed -- Milwaukee Fire Department Engine Company No. 1.
Built in 1872, it is Milwaukee's oldest continuously operating firehouse, and it is still in use today.
